First Look: Maxpedition Narrow Look Bag

As I shared last month, Maxpedition indicated some new products were on the horizon.  They didn’t waste any time.  A little over a week ago, they released a new Wolf Gray colorway (similar to Arcteryx’s Wolf Gray), a number of new zippered pouches, EDC organizers in different sizes, an RFID blocking wallet, and my personal favorite – a mid-sized urban friendly vertical messenger called the Narrow Look Bag.

At 10″(L) x 4″(W) x 12″(H), the Narrow Look is very similar in size to the Tom Bihn Ristretto for iPad, which is another bag that I like in the smaller vertical messenger category.  The difference between the two bags is that the Ristretto has a padded iPad compartment and the Narrow Look does not.  

What the Narrow Look does have is a better EDC organization setup with what looks to be a well executed front admin pocket with both elastic loops and a hook and loop panel.  The main compartment has hook and loop also.  




The great thing about hook and loop is it can be used to add accessory pockets or even a holster and magazine pouch if you CCW.



One nice feature that Maxpedition also incorporated into the Narrow Look is a silent flap closure using four magnets.  In general, I can’t stand messengers that use noisy velcro to secure the main flap and that goes double for a bag that could be used for CCW.  So kudos to Maxpedition for taking that into consideration.

The Narrow Look bag retails for $98.99 and is available on Maxpedition’s website and other outlets where Maxpedition products are sold.

    Nice bag , but too bag it has Gorby gaps .

  3. I’m a big fan of Maxpedition, and have a growing collection of bags, gears lingers, and pouches. It’s nice to see they are finally expanding their color selection. I wish they would also look at creating some more low profile gearslingers in lighter weight condura.
